Lichen on lime tree in urban area
Description:

Grey-green lichen found on Lime tree, soredia in center of thallus (rosette like form). I found two other lichens (second and third photos) on the same tree that appear to be the same species, but am not sure.

Identifications

Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.

Lichen identification

Thanks again. I suppose a hyperphysica lichen would be nutrient loving like ordinary physica lichen.
